Apple Pay declining but physical card works

I’m currently on holiday in California. In the UK, I use Curve through Apple Pay all of the time but here some of the transactions are declined. I then use the physical card instead and it works fine.

The declined Apple Pay transactions show in the Curve app as “Transactions from this type of merchant are not permitted with your Curve card.” These are for paying for car parking and coffee, so hopefully all in line with the terms and conditions!

Any suggestions for a fix? Thanks!
